Audio Blog

In this audio blog you will find three distinct categories:

  • LOGIC PRO X – Software that I know at my fingertips because I am an older Apple Mentor Trainer.
  • TIPS AND TRICKS – Covers topics related to music composition, studio and third-party software and plug-ins.
  • ABLETON LIVE – Outstanding software because it is the ultimate workstation for sampling and sound design for me.
